Kolkata: The State Government will construct five more bridges in the Sundarbans to improve connectivity between the different islands in the region. The construction will be completed over the next five years.
Several steps have been taken recently to improve road connectivity in the Sundarbans region, and the construction of the five bridges is a part of that initiative. The Sundarbans is a major tourist draw and the Government is doing a lot of work to ramp up the infrastructure.
The improvements in infrastructure are turning out to be a big boon for the locals as well. Creating a viable system of transport and communication has always been a challenge in the mangrove islands and, to this end, the Government is bridging the gaps rapidly.
